CheckPoint HR, the leader in technology-driven employee benefits solutions, today announced the appointment of James Pugliese as its Chief Executive Officer. Pugliese is an industry veteran who brings over twenty years of executive leadership experience in healthcare and employee benefits to CheckPoint HR.
